differential centrifugation

a technique in which cell organelles can be separated by centrifuging an homogenate at various speeds, each speed causing sedimentation of a specific cell fraction. The smaller the organelle, the higher the speed required for sedimentation. See DENSITY-GRADIENT CENTRIFUGATION, ULTRACENTRIFUGE, CENTRIFUGATION.
